Multisport World Championships Qualifier Festival 2021

Sebring, Florida

May 01 - 02, 2021


festivalUSA Triathlon is pleased to announce we are offering a 2021 Multisport World Championships Qualifier on May 1-2 in Sebring, Florida, as part of the Sebring Multisport Festival produced by Integrity Multisport. This event is another opportunity for athletes to qualify for USA Triathlon’s Team USA for 2021 World Triathlon Championships in three different locations — Edmonton, Canada; Almere-Amsterdam, Netherlands; and Viborg, Denmark — across a variety of multisport disciplines. 

Registration for all World Qualifier events is open now at triregistration.com.

The World Qualifier is meant to account for the various 2020 USA Triathlon National Championships that were canceled due to COVID-19, and which would have otherwise qualified athletes for 2021 World Championships. In addition, athletes who had previously qualified for 2020 World Triathlon Championships impacted by COVID-19 have been given the option to roll their qualification over to 2021. More details about the qualification process can be found at usatriathlon.org/teamusa, or by emailing teamusa@usatriathlon.org

Note, this event is separate from the 2021 Long Course National Championships Sept. 25-26 in Stony Point, New York. The World Qualifier in Sebring is NOT considered a National Championship. The Long Course National Championships in Stony Point will award 2021 national titles and qualify athletes for 2022 World Championships.

The 2021 World Qualifier in Sebring will include the following multisport disciplines, which will qualify top athletes in each age group for their respective 2021 World Championships:
